7:03 am
do you see what is happening. no, i love you babe. the deadliest mass shooting in u.s. history. salman was with mateen days before when he bought ammunition. according to a source, they were at a walmart and she was with their 3-year-old boy in the toy department. the owner of the florida gun store lotus gun works said he refused to sell body armor and ammunition to mateen weeks earlier. he alerted authorities, but law enforcement sources tell nbc news they were not contacted. meanwhile, mateen's troubled history is surfacing. as early as the third grade, teachers were concerned. one writes, he is verbally abusive, rude and much talk about sex and violence. obscenities. fifth grade. opposition al. lacks remorse. years later in high school,
7:04 am

senate ready to take up a couple of amendments on monday. >> paul ryan and a lot of republicans tap dancing around trump. hallie, thank you. >> let's bring in chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." good morning. >> good morning. >> i listened to your interview with paul ryan. he called trump a unique nominee and puts republicans in a strange situation. he said members can vote conscious, but he will vote with the nominee. what do we make of this? >> look, he is acknowledging the obvious which is right now it looks like donald trump is not the most helpful nominee for republicans down the ticket. he knows that every republican is basically getting close to every republican for themselves. he said at end of the day, he makes the best decision as elected leader of the house. not as congress member ryan, but speaker ryan. he understands that every
7:09 am
republican may have to make the best decision for their state. you say it any way without saying i can't run with donald trump is essentially what he is saying. >> chuck, on wednesday night, donald trump said republicans criticizing him, please don't talk. be quiet. if i have to go it alone without the rnc or establishment, i'll be just fine. he was right about that in the primary. is he right about that in the general? >> he is not. i understand why he wants them to stop talking. the more public the divide, the tougher it is for trump to raise money. right now, he is on a sort of cramming issue trying to raise as much money by the end of the july. that is why he is in georgia and texas and arizona rather than swing states. he is in big money communities. i tell you, the money is not coming in fast. that's the problem. the more you hear ryan and mcconnell and other senators wringing their hands about
7:10 am
trump, more donors are wringing their hands. >> let's talk about hillary clinton. i know you think this is significant. she has a significant ad buy on air. why do you think this is an important time to do this? >> this is sort of the july and summer break and summer holidays and two conventions. the olympics in august. this is one of these important two or three week periods where you sort of where the race is at the end of june is where the race will be on labor day. if you recall four year ago, barack obama unloaded on mitt romney in the period before the convention. set a baseline and romney never recovered. this time -- romney actually had money to fight back on television. hillary clinton is up by herself. trump, the republicans, no one is countering this. she will be up by herself for two weeks. there are negative ads on him and positives on her. it could make it where he would be in a hole he cannot dig out.
7:11 am
>> chuck todd, thanks so much. you can see more of the interview with paul ryan this sunday on "meet the press." another big story breaking. diplomats breaking ranks with the president calling for air strikes against the syrian government. richard engel is in istanbul this morning. richard, this is remarkable to have a break with the president from his own administration. >> i think it expresses the deep frustration that is even within the state department about the current u.s. policy in syria. don't forget 400,000 people had been killed in this five-year conflict. there is a dissent channel in which state department employees register opposition. what is unusual is that more than 50 mostly mid level state department employees choose to use this dissent channel to say they want a different policy. they want more military pressure put on the assad government.
7:12 am
then that dissent was leaked to the media. it is something of a revolution within the state department whether it will change u.s. policy seems unlikely. the issue is the policy does not preve prevent assad and russia from killing civilians. unless pressure is put on assad, this bloodshed will continue. >> thank you, richard engel. back at home, disney world will add more alligator warning signs at the resorts. we are hearing this morning from the parents. we have nbc's gabe gutierrez with more. gabe, good morning. >> good morning. disney has not expressed how many signs will be put up. the medical examiner said the toddler di from traumatic injuries after drowning. this morning, disney world says
7:13 am
it will beef up warnings signs following the death of 2-year-old lane graves. a prayer service in the nebraska hometown. his family saying words cannot describe the shock and grief we are devastated. the last gator related injury at disney world was 30 years ago. today, paul santa maria still has the scars. >> it thrashed me around side to side. >> reporter: last year, david heiden said two alligators chased his son. >> i'm not from florida. i don't know there are gators everywhere. >> reporter: disney world had a number of signs warning not to swim, but no alligators. other signs warned guests not to feed the wildlife. we only saw one mentioning alligators. disney said we closed all of our beaches and made a decision to
7:14 am
add signage. we will have a swift review of processes. and this family live near the park. she is photographed plenty of gators. >> if there is water in florida, intere there's a gator. >> reporter: they defend disney. it clearly struck a nerve with parents across the country. >> the minute i heard they couldn't find him. that poor father trying to pull that child out of the alligator's mouth. >> the investigation into the child's death continues. a local sheriff says the wildlife officials pulled a couple more gators from the water, but so far have not determined which one grabbed the boy. willie and savannah. >> gabe gutierrez, thank you. other news now. new numbers to report on the zika virus. the number of women in the country have given birth to babies with birth defects tied
7:15 am
to zika. nbc's tom costello is following it for us. >> good morning, savannah. no cases of women effected with the zika virus inside the continental united states. all cases involve women who contracted zika while out of the united states. this morning, the latest numbers from the cdc suggest three babies born in the u.s. with birth defects linked to zika. in all, 234 pregnant women in the u.s. have been diagnosed with zika. another 189 cases reported in u.s. territories. mostly puerto rico. now with summer heating up, concern that zika carrying mosquitoes could revive on the mainland. university of maryland bug expert michael ropp says dump the standing water. >> bird baths, flower pots,
7:16 am
buckets of water. those will be the perfect breeding sites for mosquitoes. >> all of the experts advise wearing mosquito repellent. savannah. >> one big question, i think, for researchers and a lot of people at home. how long is the incubation period? how long between when you get zika and you start showing symptoms? >> the incubation period from exposure to symptoms not known exactly. it could be 2 to 14 days. sexual partners and pregnant women who have the zika virus are to practice safe sex. men in zika hot zones and return, even if they did not have symptoms are encouraged to wait eight weeks before having unprotected sex. guys. >> that's a tricky part. a lot of people don't have symptoms.
7:17 am

7:32 am
nuisance alligators. last year, the trappers that go out for the state, captured 7,513 nuisance gators. this is how they do it. it is a precarious business. one wrong step could be deadly. for three generations, the family has been trapping alligators in florida. the preferred method is a fishing rod and hook to snag a gator and drag to shore. on this night, a monster. a 13-footer. that's the death roll. >> let him roll on up. let him roll on up. >> reporter: this wild gator is almost 1,000 pounds. so big, the team tracked it ashore with the pickup truck. now climbing on its back and covering its eyes to calm it down. >> you're not scared? >> heart's beating. i respect them.

i don't know if scared's the right word. respect for these guys. >> reporter: as the sun sets, alligators begin to stir. they are nocturnal animals that need to eat once a week to survive. the mosquitoes are swarming and there's a tremendous amount of tension. every splash, every movement on the water, could be a gator. >> was that a gator? >> that was a bull frog. sounds like a gator. >> reporter: this is the sound of an alligator broadcast to lure them to trappers. it's mating season which experts say makes the gators more aggressive. that may explain why the gat or after sunset. at disney, there are no swimming signs, but there are no signs warning of the gators. >> i think they should have signs everywhere. >> do you think it is irresponsible they did not?
7:34 am
>> i don't think so. >> reporter: disney now plans to post gator signs. in the last two days as many as seven gators have been captured on the lake where the toddler has killed. bait lines are set to see if there are anymore. >> so if you worked at disney, would there be any way to control the gator population to make it safe for people? >> no. you know, i say no because they are in the wild. >> reporter: it is estimated there are 1.5 million gators in florida. the population controlled by a yearly hunt. it is smart to have a healthy respect for a lake, pond or ditch because there could be a gator lurking. state statistics show since 1948, 23 people have been killed by alligators. sadly now, guys, 24.
7:35 am
>> gator trapping is a dangerous business. kerry, thank you. we have dylan dreyer here with us for al. >> we have the wildfires in southern california. these are sundowner winds. they are similar to santa ana winds. as they rush down the mountain, they heat up and dry out. you have the dry conditions and it is not as windy as yesterday, but gusts near 20 to 25 miles per hour. temperatures will also heat up. by saturday, 86 degrees. by sunday, along with the gusty winds, temperatures up around 96 degrees. taking a look at the dangerous heat in the southwest. the hottest in tucson, 117 degrees. we are close to that by sunday with the forecast high of 116. in phoenix, 122 is the record. we are close to that on sunday with 119. possibly 120.

>> race plays a pivotal role in this series, the civil rights role and rodney king riots serve as backdrops about a football star who distanced himself from racial politics. >> the documentary illustrates the central paradox of the o.j. simpson story, is that o.j. himself did everything he could to try to be seen as a non-racial figure. but the story of his acquittal is the story of how his defense team used race to o.j.'s tremendous benefit. >> marcia clark gave us a statement saying this documentary provides what is perhaps the most profound examination of the history of race relations in los angeles in any medium. the series tells the truth about the context in which the simpson trial took place and it is far and away one of the most riv riveting, moving and honest pieces i have ever seen. the fourth installment airs

our bright, bold ocean spray craisins® dried cranberries transform everything. so, we're doing a taste test. which tastes better? "b," "b," and... mmm. ..."b." craisins® dried cranberries. flavor you can see. especially when it comes to snacking.g new. that's why we're introducing cheese dippers. the creamy cheese and crunchy breadsticks that go wherever you do. cheese dippers by the laughing cow. reinvent snacking. i drive i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots.
9:21 am
xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner
9:22 am
in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. kim kardashian just added a little more fuel to the kanye taylor swift back and forth. quim r kim appears on this month's "gq" magazine and for the first time, publicly defends her husband. in the song he mentions miss swift saying, i will paraphrase here, that he and taylor may still hook up because he made her famous using a derogatory term to describe taylor.
9:23 am
miss taylor's team said they were not aware of the actual lyrics but warn kanye about releasing that storm. kim tells "gq" taylor was aware of the song lyrics ahead of time. she says she totally approved that and reality star said she totally knew that was coming out and wanted to act like all of a sudden she didn't. taylor's team was swift to respond to kim's claim releasing a statement saying taylor does not hold anything against kim kardashian as she recognizes the pressure kim must be under, ooh, and only repeating what she's been told by kanye west. i will sip some tea on that. it wept on to explain taylor and her team were aware being reported is not true and taylor cannot understood that kanye west announces kim kardashian will just not leave her alone. that's a lot. surrey cruise, growing up before our eyes, a picture of her adorable daughter yesterday
